I was born & bred in Barnoldswick a small town on the Yorkshire / Lancashire border.

Shortly after I retired we moved to Silloth on Solway in north Cumbria where we have lived since 2015.

I started tying flies at the age of 47 (so a late starter).

I joined The Flydressers Guild at a newly formed branch in Barnoldswick the same year and served as secretary for several years. Although we live in Cumbria I am still a member of Pendle Branch and visit when possible.

Now aged 77 I get a lot of pleasure from our hobby and enjoy all aspects of tying flies.

Over the last three years I have tied twice at the Irish International Fly Fair in Killyleagh, Penrith Fly Fest and also this year 2018 at The Scottish Fly Fair all of which I found most enjoyable.

I have visited the BBFI shows ever since they started a day out I would not miss!

This year I look forward to being a part of the show and sharing my passion for Fly Dressing. Please stop by and say hello but most of all enjoy your day out At the BFFI 2019

Warm Regards Ken
